Serves: 6Hands-on: 15 minutesTotal: 55 minutesDifficulty: Medium

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 can (5 oz.) evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp. unflavored gelatin
  • 2 Tbsp. cold water
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil

Directions

  • Get the milk really cold by placing it in a shallow container in the freezer until crystals begin to form, about 30 minutes.
  • Place the gelatin and water in a dish without mixing. Place this dish in a container of hot water until the gelatin dissolves. Once it has dissolved, remove the dish from the hot water, stir and allow it to cool.
  • Beat the chilled milk until it forms stiff peaks. Then gradually add the sugar and oil. Finally, add the gelatin mixture. Continue beating until stiff peaks form again.
  • Cover and place in the freezer for 10 minutes, then transfer to the refrigerator.
  • When you are ready to serve, stir the cream so it is not quite as stiff. You can make this 2 to 3 days ahead of time as long as you keep it covered in the refrigerator.
